World-Mart by Leigh M. Lane
A New Dystopian novel where the world has become incorporated.
A chilling vision of a future that is all too believable.- class segregation, energy and food shortages, antibiotic resistance and a government controlling all choices and actions of society. World-Mart is a compelling new dystopian series where a family struggles to survive in a corporate-controlled society where resources are scarce in this climate-ravaged America. Those who loved 1984 or Brave New World will love World-Mart.
George Irwin remembers a time before the Big Climate Change, back when the airlines were still in business, back when people still drove their own cars and the bulk of humanity had not yet been driven underground. Back when all people were still people despite their eye color or which class they were born into. . . .
The world has changed much over his lifetime, but George still believes in the American Dream. However, when an alleged terrorist act lands his wife in the hospital, George stumbles upon a secret that could mean the end of all civilization.
World-Mart takes place in a not-too-distant future, one in which the collective and all-powerful entity known as “Corporate” owns and controls every aspect of society. One held in place by complacency and mediocrity.
One that could very easily come to pass . . . very soon.
What does your future look like?
